Perfect fit!

I'm not a reenactor, but play one in my basement ;)

I picked up one of these (at the largest size available) and it fits like it was made just for me. So nice and sturdy, and looks absolutely stunning. Some day I hope to do some talks for the Girl Scouts, and this will come in VERY handy.

Great hat!

Great hat! Well made & sturdy. One of the few top hats to be found in larger sizes. Have had mine for several years. Wore it to work often. Even though it is slightly bell crowned, the style works with clothing from different periods; I generally wear it with later 19th century style clothing, though it appears to be an earlier style. Also, I have a large head, and this hat just works better with that big skull than most others. Even wore it to my wedding.
